Telangana Police Developed A Facial Recognition Software To Bring Missing Children Back To Their Homes

They applied a facial recognition technology called Darpan.

A missing girl from Assam united with family thanks to a facial recognition software called Darpan which the Telangana Police developed. The officials revealed this information on Monday.

Missing Girl

Anjali Tigga lived in Boginodi, Lakhimpur, Assam and earned her living in Delhi. On September 2017, the girl returned to Assam while her parents were unaware of this. At that time, Anjali found a job near Sonitpur.

After that, she was noticed by Railway Police when going for a wander on the streets. The officials took her to the Child Welfare Committee in Tezpur who became her new shelter home.

As per Anjali’s parents, her missing made them extremely anxious. On August 2017, they informed Anjali’s missing to the police with the hope to find their daughter.

How did the police find Anjali and help her to reunite with her family? They applied a facial recognition technology called Darpan. The technology is developed to store all database of children and people who are staying at rescue homes in India. Based on this database, it can compare the missing people’s photos to those of the people living at registered rescue homes.

Swati Lakra who works for Telangana Inspector General of Police (IGP), Woman’s Safety Wing revealed that after it was rolled out on August 2018, Darpan traced Anjali to a Children’s Home which is located in Sonipur, Tezpur district, Assam.

Finally, the police came to inform Anjali’s parents of where she was staying. After one year away from her family, Anjali Tigga has now been able to live with her relatives once again.

Also in a release, Lakra said that their facial recognition software has kept collecting more database and comparing its existing photos to those of children who are losing their parents. The police have been conducting the verification process to bring a chance to reunite with families to these children.
